There is an eternal set of holiday staples upon which you can rely each and every year: Christmas music, tins of stale cookies, too many eggnogs (you lushes) and, above all else, the awkward family dinners. Yes, we all have those meals with the extended family replete with uncomfortable political debates and questions regarding just when someone intends to marry or reproduce. But, for these four celebrity families, dinner might be a bit more awkward than it is for the rest of us.
The Carter-Knowles Family
After Elevatorgate, the true story of which we may never really know, we imagine this family has had more than its fair share of awkward moments. Hopefully any uncomfortable silences at the dinner table can be broken with Blue Ivy’s flawless dance moves.The Lohans
The likelihood of everyone in this mess sitting down to dinner together is low, but, oh my, is it ever fun to picture. Michael and new step-mama Kate Major drunkenly fighting with Dina while Lindsay reminds everyone she’s a true thespian now, all to the dulcet tones of Ali Lohan singing her classic, “Lohan Holiday,” and the other ones do other-one things? We can’t picture a more perfect celebration of this special time of year.
Will LiLo make it home for the holidays at all? The Gossip Table has more.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
These two had a weird year. First he cheated and went to rehab — because in Hollywood, rehab is a catch-all cure for every single questionable life choice and not a life-saving measure to treat addiction like it is for us mere mortals. Their show True Tori brought us all a look at marital difficulty, mostly sex-related (who could forget Tori’s anal implications?). Then she thought she had Ebola (she did not have Ebola) and was hospitalized. Now they’re supposedly fine, though that may change depending upon the existence of another season of True Tori. Pain is good for business, after all.
The Honey Boo Boo Family
Ugh, let’s just skip this one. It’s too awkward to even speculate upon.
Happy holidays to everyone, and a very merry awkward dinner.
